Agreed, much thought has already gone into the package.  Any remaining 
problems can be fixed after it is imported into CVS.  We just have to 
make sure of two things that I can see:

1) The default password is somehow securely handled.  I didn't read too 
carefully, how was this resolved?
2) Users wont accidentally upgrade from a possible custom jabberd 
package that uses a database backend and break their install.

So maybe enabling all the DB backends in the CVS import would be good? 
Then verify & revise in CVS at least these two conditions before 
requesting the build.

If Adrian is willing to go forward, he may import it.
